Farewell, my FSJ friends....

Well.


With an odd feeling in my heart I am here to report I have taken payment on the jeep, and it will be shipped off to Kentucky in the coming weeks.




What a ride this has been.
10 years, nearly 30,000 miles.
I bought it as a college graduation present to myself.
I proposed to my wife on a trip we took with it.
It gave me 10 stitches.
It ate thousands and thousands of my dollars.
It's kept me laying away many nights pondering or worrying.
It's been up to 10,000' elevation.
It's been down to -190' elevation.
It's visited bunches national parks and state parks.
It's spent tons of nights camping.
It's brought me into numerous communities.
It's made me numerous friends.
It's been recognized by strangers on the road, trail, and in campgrounds.
It's been the cause for many smiles, and many frowns/curse words.
It's created a ton of good memories.




Anyway. It's a weird feeling, but it was time to end this chapter of my life. We'll see what I feel like when it gets loaded onto a truck and drives away though. It definitely wont be forgotten.


Here's to you, Wagoneer.

Sad. I've still got my J-10, 25 yrs., now. Although I don't drive it much, anymore. Curious, what are you replacing it with?

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

Oh lord what a moment. I have already promised that I'll never sell my Jeep, but then again, who knows what life will throw at you? At the very least, it takes a special kind of person to keep an old Wagoneer on the road for as long as you did. I'm sure the buyer is going to have the same mentality. Cherish the memories you made.
